causes. Great reforms result
from the pressure of great evils.
This pressure drives all the peo
ple affected by it to think and
act. All that reformers can do
is to assist in arousing and di
recting thought and action. If
the great evils of which we com
plain to-day are genuine, their
pressure will continue and in

"possess his soul in patience,"
has not many years to wait for
the reward of his labors.
